Zozibini Tunzi is currently trending on Twitter after tweeps dragged her into Miss SA Shudufhadzo Musida’s graduations mess.
The star who was sitting quietly on her own got dragged into something she has nothing to do with.
Shudufhadzo celebrated graduating from the University of Wits with a BA Honours degree in International Relations and she shared her graduation video.
However, this is her second degree as she had previously secured one from the University of Pretoria and it is a Bachelor of Social Science degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
Things got really messed up after people realised Shudu was the only graduate from thousands of graduates, not only from Wits but from other universities who could not have their graduation ceremonies at their graduation halls.
Even though she clarified that it was a virtual graduation which then resulted in her wearing her graduation gown and walking the stage, she said she had an interview with the Vice Chancellor Prof Zeblon Vilakazi.
“After my virtual graduation today, I had an interview opportunity with VC Prof Zeblon Vilakazi and of course I went in my grad attire. This pandemic has led to trying times and uncertainty for everyone. To all students who had to persevere even in the least ideal times… phambili! Congratulations to the class of 2020,” she wrote on IG.
Due to this video, many started comparing Shudu to Zozi stating Zozi would never do such a thing.
“People are upset about this and rightfully so. All graduates put in the work and didn’t even get their names read out during the virtual graduation ceremony, but she gets a special graduation. Yes, she is Miss SA, but she is a student like the rest. This smells of classism,” one user wrote.
Dragging Zozi into the mess, a social media user wrote, “I’m sure Zozi wouldn’t have agreed to do that graduation alone while other students didn’t. Unengqondo uZozi (she has a brain) and always tries not being treated special andimazi yena lona (I don’t know about Shudu),” one wrote.
